Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops - Day 1


Welcome to our Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops! As many of you know, Verve is celebrating its 5th anniversary this month and the party is just getting started! Come join us over the next 9 days as we showcase the 23 new stamps and dies releasing from Verve! We'll be counting down the minutes and revealing all the new sets in our forum from 9-11pm Eastern on Friday, August 24, so make plans now to join us for our release party!

In the meantime, we've got a fun filled hop for you today! So let your fingers do the clicking and peek into the creative minds of Verve's talented Divas and Guest Divas as they give you a little tour of what's to come! Inspiration abounds, and so do the PRIZES!
That's right! We've picked a mystery blog from today's hop and hidden a prize! So be sure to give a little shout out in the comment section as you hop around to each blog on the list. We’ll draw a random winner from all of the comments on the mystery blog to win today's featured sets and dies. Check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines. Want even more chances to win? Head on over to the Verve SCS forum and play along in our Anni-VERVE-sary release challenges. Or hop on over to the Verve Blog to find out about our Verve Card Carnival, for a chance to win the entire new release (a $300+ value)!
 If you've arrived here from Andrea's Blog, then you're in the right place!!  Today I have two projects for you.  Both introduce to you the new set With Love.  The first one also uses the new Pennant Trim Die!  I used papers from the Summer Fresh Collection from Simple Stories.  I stamped, colored and cut out the little birdie and mounted it on top of the pennant that I die cut and mounted on the card with foam tape.  The sentiment was stamped right onto the patterned paper.






My second card is Clean and Simple and is for the CAS Challenge that Tosh and I are hosting over in the Verve Forum!!  For this card, I used the cupcake image from With Love.  The top of the cupcake was paper pieced and the bottom was colored with Copic markers.  I added a few score lines to the card for some interest.  The cupcake top has Stardust Stickles all over it for some sparkle. 
 Now, head on over to Janelle's Blog to see what awesome-ness she has to show you!!

These cards are just too cute. The pretty papers just top off the stamps to really make them pop. Everything just coordinated so well. Great job.
